6 Easy Ways To Eat Like A Dentist

In this blog post from The Yuma Dentist in Yuma AZ, we are talking about nutrition. There is nothing that impacts your smile as much as your eating habits.

1. Rinse after eating

Rinse your mouth with a drink of water or brush your teeth after meals. People who snack all day long subject their teeth to sugars and food debris. Planned meals with brushing in between keeps your oral health on top.

2. Avoid sugary gum

Sugar free gum doesn’t leave sugar to break down on your teeth and jeopardize your hard earned healthy gums. If you are gum chewer, do your smile a favor and go sugarless.

3. Avoid sticky foods

Sticky foods cling to your teeth, which puts you at risk of decay. Toffee, gummy candy, fruit snacks, even excessive dried fruit can be concerning for smiles. Brushing doesn’t always remove the obstinate particles, so be sure to floss after eating sticky stuff.

4. Consume nutritious foods

A balanced diet with a variety of vitamins and minerals can keep the immune system sturdy and able to combat infection.

5. Say ‘cheese!’

Cheese contains calcium and protects teeth from acid that weakens tooth enamel. (Don’t go overboard, since cheese is high in fat.)

6. Avoid acidic foods

Acid will eat away enamel over time: lemons, red wine, soda pop. Limit direct, constant, consistent exposure. All things in moderation.
